Hey guys so just got the monitor plugged it in and everything , everything looks SOOOOO nice. =]

I ended up going with a similar monitor.

It is a 24" 1080P 1920x1080. DVI & VGA Acer monitor.

here's the link : http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...2&#WriteReview

Also, I see that it has volume control and a sound input on the back, but it says it has no speakers, so I am a bit confused there.

All in all, great monitor for the price.

That could be an external speaker option. You plug your speakers into it, another cable will go to your computer, and you can control the volume from the monitor.

Glad you're happy

Hehe, thanks.

A small thing I noticed though not sure if it's because Word has not picked up the monitor yet, but when I open word the document shows up like this :



Is it suppose to show up like that ? I changed it to one page at the top, and it brought it to the center, because at first it was to the left side of the window. Also, the zoom is at 100%.
